I've an idea for another story that involves the use of malicious black magic. However, despite a sensible amount of investigating for actual historical acts of such I can't find any.
Black magic this, black magic that, they did black magic, they were accused of black magic, there are laws being passed against those that persecute those accused of black magic - but not a single reference to "They turned my child into a goat with black magic!" or "My loving wife was turned to stone by black magic!"
Can't find a simple list of"Don't let those warlocks kick sand in your face! Look at what you can do if you only knew black magic!" Not even at the school for it. http://www.blackmagick.com/index.html I mean... for really. Before I send any money I want to see a course syllabus or something. - Turn your enemies into worms! - Impregnate the wives of your enemies with goat babies! - How to make the dead rise in your neighbor's closet!
Any of you guys out there find any decent web links for something I can use? I hate to just make up dumb sh!t when there's all this talk about BLACK MAGIC implying there actually is some going on.
In advanced stages of Black Magic, there is usually Entity Possession/Spirit Attachment. Demonic possession and spirit attachment are very different. Demonic possession is much more serious. The symptoms of black magic listed below also fit symptoms of Demonic Possession, in combination with all the above symptoms.
Critical illness/possibly of more than one family member/allopathic doctors cannot find the source of the illness. Medicines do not work, and allopathic medicine does not work, probably makes them worse, confusing doctors or they are telling you there is nothing wrong. Cancer. Suicidal attempts/Family members contemplating suicide/Overwhelming impulses to self-torture with suicidal or homicidal risk. Total self destruction through substance abuse/addictions. Ravishing hunger, hungry again not long after eating. Heart attacks/intense heart pain that feel like heart attacks, and come suddenly/can be several in one day. Incredible thirst, possibly caused also by stress. Your waking state is like a horror movie every minute with no sense of relief except short periods while sleeping. Waking is torture. You feel it is difficult to come back to your body after you have been sleeping. You feel you must fight to get back in your body or wake up. You experience entities or energies trying to attack or kill you while sleeping. You remember running from them. You see dark shadows in your room/around you when you try to sleep. Slashes/cuts/claw marks on your body when you wake from sleeping.
Symptoms of Black Magic/Demonic Possession in Women: Bruises around your reproductive area when you wake from sleeping. Dreams of being raped or having sexual intercourse with someone or something else while you are asleep, possibly resulting in a real orgasm. Erratic menstrual periods, either no period at all, or very irregular, or excruciatingly painful periods that are completely debilitating. Unable to conceive children/barren because of blocks caused by magic or possession. Recurring miscarriages, even though there are no physical problems. Irritation in vagina/feelings of yeast infections/pain and burning/Leukorrhea.
Um... that's pretty much just regular, normal medical sh!t.
I'm looking for some real liveSNAKES POURING OUT THEIR ORIFICES! or LIQUEFY THEIR EYES! sort of cr@p. Not... yeast infections. (Is there an emoticon available for me staring at a person as if they're stupid?)
"BY THE POWERS OF BEELZEBUB, I AFFLICT THEE WITH A... YEAST INFECTION!!! It's a really pernicious and nasty one. You know, where your scratching all day long. Even in front of your boss!"
That's right. Satan's gonna put down his paper and put his house shoes on, gonna schlep all the way up here from h3ll to give your nasty supervisor a case of crotch rot. Puh-leeeze. And we burned at the stake people for this sh!t? (That's a rhetorical, BTW).
It's irritating reading about all these seemingly sensible people getting all in an uproar over BLAAAACK MAAAAGIC! when none of them can actually cite a single activity.
I think you're going to be disappointed, Ray. I've done a fair share of research on the subject (for an unrelated project) and I think real world magic(k) really isn't what most people think it is. You could even argue it's not actually supernatural. Don't take my word for it though. I'm no expert and there's still a lot I don't know or haven't fully grasped.
Honestly, I think the kind of stuff you're looking for was made up by the people responsible for combating it. Frankly, I think that'd be a lot more interesting a concept to explore. Or you could always just go ahead and write a script about goat babies and turning people into worms with no research whatsoever. I'd read it, for sure.
James - I think you're going to be disappointed, Ray. Oh, I am. I'm kinduva wiener about keeping things legit. If Spielberg wants to have heads melt when the ark of the covenant opens that's one thing, but I don't wanna read no OWC of water goblins copulating with mountain sirens.
Sometimes move magic is just stupid. A little is okay, but...
Or you could always just go ahead and write a script about goat babies and turning people into worms with no research whatsoever. I'd read it, for sure. LOL! Dude, you ain't right. Don't tempt me, you sirenous succubus! I just might. Gonna border on a pisstake.
MC - Wow. THAT should be the source material a 7WC. (Probably better than that DOUBT rubbish.) What a real horror story. And surely there are hundreds if not thousands of other stories better and worse.
LOL moment: "The exorcisms had been so appreciated by the public of Loudun that they became a type of tourist attraction at the convent. Nuns would lift their skirts and beg for sexual attention, beat their heads, walk on their hands, and use obscene language."
This is what most black magic type films are based on. It purports to be the be the magick Solomon used to build his Temple, but historians say it's written much later than that. It follows a Biblical Hierarchy of Demons.
You'll probably recognise a lot of the names from various things. A lot are old Pagan Gods that have been "demonised" eg Baal. In general you have to evoke the lesser ones first and ask for their loyalty and build up through the hierarchy until you get Lucifer himself/herself to pledge allegiance. They provide familiars and teach you the secrets of life.
That page also references The Scared Magic of Abramelin the Mage...which is considered powerful enough to potentially create problems by just owning a copy.
This is now an official religion, but its followers tend to be very dark individuals indeed...much darker than Satanists for example. I wouldn;t write about them though, they are easily upset and can make your life a living hell, quite literally.
Now is anyone going to ask Rick how he happens to know so much about the subject?
No shit. How am I gonna impress this guy with horror???
Was fearing i wouldn't be in, til an idea came to me today. I'm on page 7. Pretty confident it has some decent chill to it and has a bit of originality. I think I can finish by tomorrow night. Done for tonight, enjoying some libations.
So who else is in? I know Phil, Ryan, Shawn, and Ray are. Screenrider promised me that his script will blow mine out of the water. So I guess that means he's in.
